NX CAM Postprocessor

Hi,

 

we have a 3 axis CNC machine: spinner-MVC-850 / Sinumeric 840 D SL-710-6A2C. 

I want to know if it is possible to use mill_3axis_Sinumerik_840D_mm.pui as a post processor for this machine without any customization or I must do a customization to generate the G code to this machine.

I want to know if there is an other post processor for this machine in the postprocessor library and it needs customization or not.

Could you please help.

Thanks .

 

Regards.

There is no way to avoid customization, since every machine tool vendor adds his own stuff.

All the PPs shipping with NX are good for a start, but they all need to be adapted to fit the machine.

You can buy two machines of the same kind and configuration about half a year apart, but they are different in their innards.

Yes - coolant codes (particularly for high pressure) often change machine to machine.

Another issue is if some machines have an option, and some don't
